Description/Mission Statement

The Military and Veterans Health SIG is an interdisciplinary group of researchers, clinicians, health professionals, and educators who are committed to promoting research, prevention, assessment, intervention, policy development, education, training, and mentoring in Military and Veterans health. This includes research, practice, and policy across settings and translating evidenced-based behavioral medicine interventions into clinical care for Military Servicemembers, Veterans, and their Families to improve health outcomes. We invite those who have an interest in promoting health within the unique healthcare systems in the Department of Defense (DoD) and the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), as well as those interested in improving health outcomes for Military Servicemembers, Veterans, and their Families across settings, around the globe.
